Judge Declares Bill Cosby Sexual Assault Case A Mistrial
Bill Cosby’s sexual assualt case has come to a close.
After the jury – made up of seven men and five women – underwent six days of deliberations and were unable to come to a unanimous verdict on any of the three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault that Cosby had been charged with, the judge has declared it a mistrial.
But the comedian who plead not guilty isn’t off the hook just yet. According to ABC News, “Kevin R. Steel, the district attorney from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, who brought the charges, has announced he will retry the case.”
CNN, who has been live reporting the happenings of the case, shared that a spokeswoman for Cosby read a statement from his wife, Camille Cosby, who criticized prosecutors, the judge and the media.
In addition, they reported that Gloria Allred, the attorney representing many of Cosby’s accusers, said she hopes the court will allow other “prior bad act witnesses” to testify at the next trial. “If the court allows more accusers to testify … it might make a difference. In other words, it’s too early to celebrate Mr. Cosby.”
